we did it!!!!

i've been busy all morning with my comference, but when i had the chance, i sneaked a look at huffington post on my iPhone and had to restrain a victory whoop! i seriously got goosebumps over my entire body when i read "president-elect obama," and tears in my eyes as i sat in the hotel lobby just now and read this:

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that difference.

It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled - Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America."

i am so thankful that i don't have to write any more posts about sarah palin! :-) we really did it!!! let's hope that the energy that swept him to victory will enable all of us to pull the country (and the world) out of the mess it's been left in by 8 years of bush's mismanagement. it seems that hope has arrived!

That speech was incredible. I wish you could have been with me in SF. But you were, in spirit.
